Ascorbate peroxidase from Jatropha curcas enhances salt tolerance in transgenic Arabidopsis

Y. Chen, Cai, J., .X.Yang, F., Zhou, B., and Zhou, L. R., Ascorbate peroxidase from Jatropha curcas enhances salt tolerance in transgenic Arabidopsis, vol. 14, pp. 4879-4889, 2015.

Ascorbate peroxidase (APX) plays a central role in the ascorbate-glutathione cycle and is a key enzyme in cellular H2O2 me­tabolism. It includes a family of isoenzymes with different character­istics, which are identified in many higher plants. In the present study, we isolated the APX gene from Jatropha curcas L, which is similar with other previously characterized APXs as revealed by alignment and phylogenetic analysis of its deduced amino acid sequence.
